Texts Concerning Shield & Barrier Rewritten
Jan 21, 2021

Greetings, Captains! After the v4.5 update, we have reworked the concept of [Shield] and [Barrier] to define their application. Their new definitions are as follows:

 

[Shield]: A Shield can be broken by incoming attacks. It can block a given number of incoming attacks, block/reduce an amount of incoming DMG, or increase/maximize the host's Ignore Interrupt. A Shield may have its own HP, DEF, or Elemental Resistance. It applies to the entire team.

 

[Barrier]: A Barrier can be broken by incoming attacks. It can block a given number of incoming attacks, block/reduce an amount of incoming DMG, or increase/maximize the host's Ignore Interrupt. A Barrier may have its own HP, DEF, or Elemental Resistance. It only applies to the caster.

Based on their new definition, we have overhauled the texts of the following battlesuit skill, weapon skill, and stigma skill descriptions for accuracy.
